Corey was walking home from school one afternoon when he saw two men arguing in the middle of the road. In the beginning he was entertained by the argument so he figured he would stand there to find out what the brawl was about. After a couple minutes passed the two men began to get louder and a fight broke out. Back and forth, the two men exchanged punches and one man was tackled to the ground. The stronger man got up and pulled out a gun and began to shoot the other man. Corey could tell that the man who was shot was instantly killed. He was now a witness to a fatal shooting crime. Residing in the neighborhood he was born in, he was told to never report to the police when he saw a crime, so now Corey could not decide on what to do. Many people

Over the course of history humans always been in war and somehow found a way to kill one another. Weapons have become more and more deadly to the point where we have weapons that can kill less than a second. These weapons are called guns and they have been one of the most controversial subjects in history. Many people think their should be a ban on guns and their are those that think otherwise. Molly Ivins, the woman who wrote “Get a Knife, Get a Dog, but Get Rid of Guns” supports knifes over guns and says that guns only kill but, her essay is put together poorly because of constant use of verbal fallacies such as hasty generalization, oversimplification, and even either-or fallacy.
LAS VEGAS SHOOTING : HOW IT HAPPENED "Then two rows in front of me a woman goes down and a man yells that she’s bleeding and people duck down," Compton said. "And I’m just standing there." Compton 's friend yelled at her: Get down! But she didn’t immediately understand what was happening. "Even three or four minutes into it, I was still thinking, ‘This can’t be happening.
Giving up the Gun tells the story of Japan, a highly civilized country, who possessed a highly developed technology in firearms and voluntarily chose to give up these weapons to return to a more primitive style culture. There was no real forceful abolition of firearms, but instead a slow voluntary effort and shift of mindset. Further than the story though, Giving up the Gun makes the claim that progress is not inevitable, and that we are able to control and guide its direction. Firearms were brought into Japan in the mid-1500s and actually took a while to catch on and be mass-produced.

Thesis 1: Charlton Heston is directly responsible for the large amount of gun ownership in America and is thus responsible for the large amount of gun related violence in America. If he stopped his rallying then gun violence would drop. Response: I disagree with this statement because Charlton Heston only promotes legal ownership of guns, and he does not support any form of violence and only encourages guns be used for self defence.
“Our Blind Spot about Guns” Rhetorical Analysis Essay American Journalist, Nicholas Kristof, in his essay, “Our Blind Spot about Guns”, addresses that if only guns were regulated and controlled like cars, there would be less fatalities. Kristof’s purpose is to emphasize how much safer cars are now than in the past, while guns do not have the same precautions. He constructs a compelling tone in order to convince the reader that the government should take more control on the safety of guns and who purchases them. Kristof builds credibility by successfully exerting emotional appeals on the audience, citing plausible statistics, and discussing what could possibly be done to prevent gun fatalities. Kristof begins his essay by discussing how automobile
As gun violence has been plaguing the United States of America for a number of decades, causing mass shootings and unwanted deaths, it is not surprised that more than 100 million handguns are owned in America for protection (Kates & Mauser, 2007). To prevent the future generation from being a victim to gun violence, some suggests that they should be allowed to carry firearms on campus for self-defence. This essay is against the opinion of permitting students from carrying weapons to school regardless the advantages it might bring. This is because teenagers have yet to fully reach maturity, teenagers armed are seen as a threat to others and lack of training in handling firearms. One of the reasons to prevent students from carrying guns is the fear of misusing firearms.
Throughout the world, violence has occurred in some form in each individual’s life since the beginning of time. Violence is any action, inaction, or structural arrangement that results in physical or nonphysical harm to one or more animals. There are three types of violence to classify the act, which is Institutional, Interpersonal, and Structural. Within each type of violence are specific categories that occur, such as family, religion, educational, corporate, and even economical violence.
Gun control problems Nowadays, we can hear the crimes related to guns from time to time, and each of them is scarified and influential. For example, the accident happened in Sandy Hook Elementary School leads to 20 deaths for primacy school students and 6 deaths for staffs. It is hard to imagine what degree of sadness in their family may suffer. In this way, many people think the government should have stronger gun control regulations.
Secondly, a gun is useless unless one knows how to use it. If you put a gun on the table and tell it to shoot, it is obviously not going to go off. Therefore, proper gun instruction is vital to operating a gun. Before handling a gun, “learn how it operates. Know the basic parts, how to safely open and close the action and remove any ammunition from the gun or magazine” (NRA Gun Safety Rules 5).
"In 1990, handguns were used to kill approximately 48 people in Japan, 8 in Great Britain, 34 in Switzerland, 52 in Canada, 58 in Israel, 42 in West Germany and 10,728 in the United States”. For many years, America has been regarded as one of the world’s most perilous and ferocious countries in the world. The death rate caused by active gun shooters in the US is extraordinary: “since 1968, more Americans have died from gunfire than died in … all the wars of this country 's history”. Hence why public ownership of guns should be abolished in the USA. Can you imagine to what extent the death rate in America has increased by now?
